1. Sing sweet Carols, Christ is born,
    Glory, hallelujah!
Sing sweet songs for Christmas morn,
    Glory, hallelujah!
Hear the angels song afar,
As it floats from star to star,
As it floats from star to star,
    Glory, hallelujah!

2. Sing they now as once of old,
    Glory, hallelujah!
Striking on their harps of gold,
    Glory, hallelujah!
Children, join your Christmas hymn
With the chanting seraphim,
With the chanting seraphim,
    Glory, hallelujah!

3. Through the silent skies afar,
    Glory, hallelujah!
See his bright and shining star,
    Glory, hallelujah!
As it shone long years ago,
On Judea's hills of snow,
On Judea's hills of snow,
    Glory, hallelujah!

4. Jesus once a little child,
    Glory, hallelujah!
Guide us by thy Spirit mild,
    Glory, hallelujah!
Till our Christmas songs we sing
In the city of our King,
In the city of our King,
    Glory, hallelujah!
